You've driven on this track? 8) I'm jealous! :lol:

No.. do not do it "like Andrew does." Don't let him feel good about it!

Autosport now reports that Valencia rules are to stand, Silverstone not. Does this mean that Silverstone points will be annulled as it's the only race with these funky regs? :?

Glad you found the edit button, Andrew couldn't quite get his head around that one.

A nice selection of maps there, good job!

Can we remove the wikipedia picture? Wikipedia's corner 4 and 5, FIA regards as one corner 4 so the numbers don't sync up. And it doesn't add much to the first image first

I removed it Raymond and thanks for clarifying it for me. I was thinking about it as well and couldn't find a better image until I got the map on Formula1 website.

It does produce interesting races, the weather can spice things up and there are overtaking opportunities. I used to prefer the old speedier first corner though.

GT5 has the "24h" layout, where you get to do the whole of the new circuit before you start the Nordschleife, now that is an interesting track!!!

I think it would have given a much clearer picture of the OTEBD ban tbh... slow corners are where the OTEBD is more crucial
